On April 9, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam and the People's Republic of China. See Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part of the Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the People's Republic of China, 75 FR 18154 (April 9, 2010). The preliminary results of the review for certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam is currently due no later than October 31, 2010.
Statutory Time Limits
In antidumping duty administrative reviews, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act Start Printed Page 55741allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this administrative review within the original time limit because the Department requires additional time to analyze questionnaire responses, issue supplemental questionnaires, conduct verification, and to evaluate surrogate value submissions.
Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of the administrative review by 120 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than February 28, 2011, the first business day following 120 days from the current deadline. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
